Thanks all for the comments, as always a real help. What's the reason for this? I thought you face the direction of the shuttle, so if you're on left side and shuttle is played from left corner you'll be slightly facing left, thus right leg forward. But if the shuttle is lifted right you'll be facing right, thus left foot forward. And vice versa if you're positioned on the right hand side. Noted, thanks. Along with my general poor racket carriage, I'll try to remember to prep better here, thanks. I also realise I'm still not rotating fully. Need to make use of my left arm to pull back at the same time. Yep, that still goes on at match nights! Have to shout to hear the score. A real pain, but only on match nights, thankfully our club nights are normal. Yeah shoot me a message, I know most of the Avon coaches, but will be interesting to know what you know.
